GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton

Leamington Spa Station: gwrls214

The new station buildings being built in conjunction with the old being demolished

View showing the new station building being built in parallel with the old structure being demolished circa 1938. As can be seen the foundations of the old station were at a higher level than than the new building. The need to provide a larger forecourt in the 1930s compared to the 1850s reflected the increase in road traffic and the need to accommodate car parking.
